Voices of Vinalhaven, Maine Part 2 of 2

On December 19, WERU 89.9 FM radio conducted a lengthy interview with residents living near the Fox Island Wind Farm located in Vinalhaven, Maine, an island community about 12 miles off the coastline. The wind facility, consisting of 3 GE 1.5 MW wind turbines, was commissioned on November 17, 2009. This video (part 2 of 2) was compiled using excerpts of the interview. Those speaking are describing their experience of living with turbine noise. The images appearing in this video are not from Vinalhaven, however, they are actual photos of other locations in North America where towers were sited very close to homes. The entire interview can be heard at WERU 89.9 FM . Duration: 8 minutes 32 seconds View Part 1: Duration 9 minutes 37 seconds

Home in a Wind Farm: Living with PSC approved setbacks in Fond du Lac County, Wisconsin

The state of Wisconsin permits 400 foot tall turbines to be sited 1000 feet from the homes of non-participating residents. Towns and counties can adopt stricter standards provided it can be demonstrated the health and safety of the residents might be at risk. As of March, 2009 there is pending legislation which would strip towns, villages and counties of the ability to create more protective ordinances than those approved by the Wisconsin Public Service Commission (PSC). This video is one in a series intended to help Wisconsin legislators understand why the PSC's setbacks and noise limits are not sufficiently adequate to protect residents from noise, shadow-flicker and other problems associated with poorly sited industrial wind turbines.

Home in a Wind Farm: Living with PSC approved setbacks in Fond du Lac County, WI

At the time when this video was made, the state of Wisconsin allowed 400 foot tall turbines to be sited 1000 feet from non-participating residents homes unless a town or county adopted an ordinance which gave residents greater protection for reasons of health and safety. In 2009, legislation was passed by the State that stripped towns, villages and counties of the ability to create more protective ordinances than those approved by the Public Service Commission. This video was one in a series intended to help Wisconsin legislators understand why the PSC's setbacks and noise limits were not adequate enough to protect residents from noise, shadow-flicker and other problems associated with poorly sited industrial wind turbines.

There are indeed problems with noise and shadow flicker at this distance. Ask people in the town of Byron in Fond du Lac what they think of the 1000 foot setback. Duration: 2 minutes 37 seconds
